Hi eds don't know if u can clear something up for me I'm seeing that according to daily mail Rooney will complete his move tonight on a free.
What I'm not sure on is that I seem to remember reading in the first case that it was for 13 mil but ed 2 said we would be likely paying around 75k of his wages if it's now going to be a 'free' would there still be the requirement for Everton to subsidise Rooney wages?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, unless they can negotiate another solution.}

Cheers ed I was hoping the no fee was to remove that I suppose it just is further proof of the messy and chaotic situation we have managed to create at the club from the top down.
Again I'm guessing a bit but I wouldn't be surprised if it will be a similar situation with Williams, schniederlin and bolasie coupled with the 2 departed managers that were still paying will be very interesting to see how much we are paying a week for people not at the club come next season
Thanks again for the reply and really good to see that u are again being involved with us on this page.

{Ed002's Note - Everton has cancelled his contract so he is free to move to DC United as and when their transfer window opens in three weeks or so. I really don't know if they have negotiated down the amount Everton will need to contribute to his wages at all.}

Just a question ed. If we cancelled his contract why do we have any obligation to pay anything to his wages.

{Ed002's Note - What Everton has cancelled is the duration for the contract - they are obliged to pay him still if it is cancelled. The point is, has there been a negotiation to put aside any transfer fee against the wages, image rights etc.?}

The only logic to this is that by cancelling his contract they have effectively allowed his next club to sign him without fee which would then be offset into the other financials involved, wages etc. The benefit to Everton is less of a financial burden than what they would currently have with him not having as much playing time compared to his first season.

{Ed002's Note - That may be the case, I don't know. In which case the money that would have been paid as a transfer fee to Everton would be paid to the player. We will see.}

If the original figure of £13m was accurate then that’s about £250k a week. Why would we say there won’t be a fee but then still contribute towards wages? Surely he either signs for them for free and we contribute nothing or we take the transfer fee and pay him out the rest of his contract?

{Ed002's Note - No, it is not a one year contract. Everton a re not well placed in this matter and throwing around random figures won't help.}

Thanks Ed. I really don’t understand how that works. It feels like owning a Mustang but not being able to afford to run it so you give it away for free but still have to put petrol in it because the person you gave it to can’t afford to either.

{Ed002's Note - Dreadful cars.}

If he’s not going to play, we’re better off removing some, most or all of his salary from the wage bill. Speculating on the exact figures is pointless. Moshiri is unlikely to sanction a deal that does not better us financially. Confident we’ll have a more balanced squad come 11th August.

Would we only be subsidising his wages for the first year?

Does united have to pay a percentage of his wage when he was playing for us and if so would that migrate over to his dc United deal too?
